A high-profile lightweight fight between Al Iaquinta and “Cowboy” Donald Cerrone has been verbally agreed to headline UFC Ottawa later this year.

The news of this fight comes as a bit of a surprise considering all the speculation in recent months regarding a possible Conor McGregor vs. “Cowboy” fight. However, with McGregor’s unpredictable lifestyle, it looks like matchmakers looked for a different dance partner for “Raging Al”.

This is exactly the kind of fight that Iaquinta, who made an appearance on Monday’s episode of Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show, has been lobbying for.

Iaquinta released a statement via ESPN’s Brett Okamoto:

“I just think it’s a great fight. I’ve been watching Cowboy since his WEC days. I like these fights, fighting guys I came up watching and always wondering how I would do against them, thinking I could beat them. I have a lot of respect for Cowboy.”

“There are a lot of big fights coming up in this division. Anybody could get a big win, and see their stock skyrocket.”

Donald Cerrone teases a potential rematch against fan favorite Nate Diaz inside of the Octagon.

These two fighters clashed back in Dec. 2011 with Diaz walking away with the unanimous decision victory. At the time, it was a big win for Diaz as Cerrone was on a six-fight winning streak.

Cerrone teased the possible fight while speaking with ESPN’s Brett Okamoto, who shared the news on his official Twitter account:

“Exchange at UFC 235 last weekend, per Cowboy Cerrone.

Cowboy: Nate, when you fighting again?

Diaz: It’s not me. UFC doing it.

Cowboy: Well, just so you know, I’ll fight you.

Diaz: S—. We’ll do it at 185. I’m done cutting weight.

Cowboy: Okay.”

Diaz has not been seen in the Octagon since his rematch with Conor McGregor back at UFC 202. He suffered a majority decision loss five months after submitting McGregor in their first bout at UFC 196.

On the flip side, Cerrone is trying to get a fight booked against McGregor this July as part of International Fight Week.
